The World is a Body

the world is a bodyWhen I was young I was told that all human beings are connected.  All of the people in the world are like one body and when one group of people hurt we all feel the pain.

This came into my mind while I was searching for a reason why bad things happen to good people.  For a long time I believed I developed a mental illness because I’d done something horribly wrong.  I just had to figure out what I did, make amends, and the illness would go away.

Now I know that I won’t be able to figure out the why behind most things but I learned that the most remarkable thing about a body is its ability to heal.
